Psalm 6 (1st version)

From Scottish Metrical Psalms 1650

Meter: 8,8,8,8

1    Lord, in thy wrath rebuke me not;
     Nor in thy hot rage chasten me.
2    Lord, pity me, for I am weak:
     Heal me, for my bones vexed be.
3    My soul is also vexed sore;
     But, Lord, how long stay wilt thou make?
4    Return, O Lord, my soul set free;
     O save me, for thy mercies' sake.

5    Because those that deceased are
     Of thee shall no remembrance have;
     And who is he that will to thee
     Give praises lying in the grave?
6    I with my groaning weary am,
     I also all the night my bed
     Have caused for to swim; and I
     With tears my couch have watered.

7    Mine eye, consum'd with grief, grows old,
     Because of all mine enemies.
8    Hence from me, wicked workers all;
     For God hath heard my weeping cries.
9    God hath my supplication heard,
     My pray'r received graciously
10   Sham'd and sore vex'd be all my foes,
     Sham'd and back turned suddenly.
